Don't believe all your hear on Midnight's Edge.
In fact believe very little of it.
I'm happy to bet money on it being on Netflix.
It's true. Midnight Edge is only accurate 25% of the time.
I think most people internationally are hoping for a well-written and engaging show (no pun intended), since TNG did make it big internationally as well so it's a given that his sequel show sorta would be too?
True and agreed, but MIdnight's Edge is still nothing more than a show for entertainment purposes. Nothing more or less than what they're opining about. They even admit they're reacting to rumor( mill article)s and most of us watch these movies and form our own conclusions since we're not getting paid to parrot their beliefs. The fact they threw temper tantrums over the claim of recent that Rian Johnson chucked JJ's trilogy plan out the window was laughable since three years ago was already reported there was no set plan for the trilogy.
Even ignoring TFA's ripping off elements of Episode IV, the plot doesn't quite add up - and I don't believe it was Midnight's Edge that pointed out "Why make a map to find a guy who's gone out of his way to not want to be found?", which is a bit of a lame way to set up a trilogy. Yes, "who made it and planted it everywhere as some big game?", sounds epic, until a few seconds of thought renders it as being laughably bad... it's a pointless mystery box either way.
TOS wasn't really intended to be international, but it did happen over time. Be willing to bet TOS has been seen in more countries than Discovery.

Drop the "2".
Still not sure how much I buy this. Considering Discovery just dumped its entire setting to go to an unknown timeframe. Changes like that usually don't happen to super popular shows.
But then it ruins the 25% joke. A joke that still has a little juice in it even though it's been like 2 years since that became a thing!
You think Parrot Analytics is making stuff up?
The argument can be made that CBS allowed the change because Discovery is popular.
Never said that. I'm not sure how accurate their samplings are in a world where they have access to none of the streaming providers data.
They're measuring demand, and the phrase CBS used was "international appeal."
Am I correct in assuming your skepticism is based on the vocal minority of angry dudes and "Not My Star Trek" curmudgeons? There's a whole world out there besides them.
Nope. Just looking for some proof that their system is actually valid in measuring demand.
But something makes you suspicious. You said before you don't think a popular show would change setting, but the idea of a setting change has been with the show from the start.
Any new system that measures demand should invite questions about how the data is collected and how it is interpreted. Nothing more, nothing less.
One question is how does one become more international in outer space? If their is a premise with more built in broad appeal than, exploring space and meeting aliens I don't know what it is.
It's hardly new. And it's what CBS and a dozen more studios use, so we're stuck with it.
I took it as code for "we're not making this for ageing white straight men".
